%. kathleen sebelius had the nerve to say the marketplace is working. if they were in a real marketplace and they had that kind of sales rate they would be going out of business. this is not working. >> they are in a position where they have to get 5 million -- that's the number that was cancelled. they have to get those 5 million signed up for insurance before a month from now. if they don't sign up by december 15 they don't have coverage january 1. according to our map, that means they need 156,000 sign-ups a day for the next 32 days just to break even. that's not counting the original 7 million they said they needed to make obama care work. >> even worse than that. you are being generous. they promised the american people -- president obama, november 6, by the end of the month we anticipate it will be working the way it is supposed to. by the end of november they promised the website would be working. starting december 1. everybody can go to health care.com and it will work like priceline. they have to have everybody signed up by the 15th. that's 15 days. 388,000 people a day they hav

services officials are there. days later kathleen sebelius says we're right on track to rolling out flawlessly october 1. are we to assume there was such a culture of intimidation or no drama within the white house that no one has had the courage or the responsibility enough to prime the president and say i just saw a presentation. this fall is going to be scary on the rollout? >> what is curious about that is kathleen sebelius was in the meeting. she was there. marilyn tavenner who runs c.m.s., they were there. they heard. one of the things mackenzie said was if your website is not working, the call centers can't get the stuff into the system. we found that out the hard way. they also said there is no single person in charge. this is a giant bureaucracy. you need a project manager. but the federal government said we can handle it. they couldn't. meanwhile it gets even worse. according to -- so that was that. they knew. they knew going back. how many times do we hear the president and his surrogates say if you like your plan, you can keep it? they have known for years that tens of m

ask you, ask any of you, have you heard from kathleen sebelius asking for your help? have you heard from the white house? have you heard from anyone in washington about this? >> no, not yet. and, you know, i hope that, you know in the future we'll actually be able to work with the government to get more, richer data sets. right now we're working with a very limited set of plan information. we're trying to quickly gather as much information as we can so we can reach as many people as we can. but really, you know if we had a broader data set that the government does have available we would be able to, you know, have a much larger impact i think. melissa: ming, what is your plan from here? is this a real business you set up with a profit motive going forward? was it just something you did in a few hours to see if you could do it? or is this a company that you're going to run? >> we haven't really talked about any sort of monetizaton or whether or not it is going to be a company. for now the goal is to provide the best user experience around, comparing and finding plans, understanding y

should do at this point? >> the democrats? i think that kathleen sebelius and president obama should send the house republican has giant gift basket with a big shiny red bow on top for their performance this week. it's pretty clear that republicans seem to have a penchant for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and i would say this week was no exception. it's clear that there are some problems with the rollout of the health care law, particularly obviously with healthcare.gov. but the one thing americans were not inclined to do was shut down the government over the health care law, and right now they might have been inclined to support hearings to find out what were the actual problems. but they're not willing to do was see it become part of a witch hunt or monkey court. that's why we're seeing support for the law go up and support for republicans drop to a low. >> having said that, what do you think the democrats should do next? >> i think they should try to get exactly what they were doing, which they should try to get to the bottom of the problems with healthcare.gov. and they sh

are not going to do that. neil: what do you think of your successor, kathleen sebelius, do you think she should go? >> i don't think that is up to me to say. neil: go ahead. >> no, no, she has a lot of problems and, i think you know, she needs to try to find a way to solv some of the problem. neil: but she is not, i am not trying to target her but she is in charge of department in charge of biggest rework. and fairly or not she botched it roll out either she was not prepared for it or they were not prepared with key i-t people or medical people, it is a sloppy debut, in private enterprise she would be out. >> yes, she would, when we rolled out part d he tested everything, week after week, any time we had a problem, we retested it, they just didn't do that. as a result they had a roll out that was not very nice. and solved -- or solved any of the problem. neil: that is putting it mildly, tommy thompson thank you, sir. >> neil thank you. neil: is it me or when you look at washington and politicians, if there plenty out there, they will find a way to spend it that is why president clinton a let'si

for those democrats to the support. earlier today, health and human services secretary, kathleen sebelius told reporters since october 1, 106,185 people have enrolled. 79,000 enrolled through state exchanges. and about 27,000 enrolled through that federal exchange. that has the had so many problems. that is about 21% of what the obama administration had expected to enroll before the exchanges were open. another 975,407 people have completed applications for insurance but have not yet made the purchase. many of those people are shopping for family plans. and the administration estimates that is coverage for 1.5 million people. an additional $396,261 people have signed up for medicaid. secretary sebelius insisted today enrollment under the affordable care act is comparable to early days of enrollment under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in
neat to look at. >> aides to hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirmed on wednesday that the web site won't be ready to handle small businesses' purchases of health insurance for their employees until this time next year, prompting this response from republican national committee chairman. with each passing day, it's clear how much worse obamacare is than a web site full of glitches. yet again the administration has made a wholesale change to their signature piece of legislation because of the disastrous impact it is having on americans. it's time we stop delays pieces of obamacare, he concluded, and scrap it and start over with common sense reforms. uninsured individuals who want to avoid paying that fine must purchase their health coverage by march 31. back to you in new york. >> thank you, james rosen, from d.c. >> thanks. >>> as the deadline approaches, we've seen a couple of closed door meetings taking place with democrats who are concerned certainly about their reelection and want to go find out from the administration what exact israeli going to happen. we know vice president b

how many americans have signed up for obama care. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirming just a short time ago that the initial enrollment numbers are woefully short of the administration's targetnd far below even their lowered expectations. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. the number is 106,000. that's how many americans have enrolled in health care plans in the state and federal exchanges through the first month of obama care, just a fifth of what administration officials had projected before the launch of healthcare.gov and the opening of the exchanges. to make matters worse, the federal exchanges operating in 36 states accounted for only 27,000 of those successful enrollments. 80,000 originated in the state-run insurance exchanges. on a conference call this afternoon, secretary sebelius revealed the embarrassingly low number, but then opened herself and the administration up to outright ridicule by calling those numbers consistent with what massachusetts, a state of only 6.5 million people, experienced in its initial rollout of romney care. sebelius also did not
